Seized car will save taxpayers money
(AP) – A car seized in Manchester in a drug crime will be used to patrol the prison in Laconia.
The federal court recently released the 1998 Lincoln to the state Corrections Department. The vehicle was seized when parole officers caught a parolee on a drug violation.
It will be used to patrol the perimeter of the Lakes Region Facility, replacing an older car. Acting Corrections Commissioner Les Dolecal said the car will save taxpayers money and help maintain security.
